BATTLE OF MONTE CASSINO part two – Mr Frank de Planta

May 03, 2024

The role of the Royal Army Medical Corps at Monte Cassino – a snapshot in time

Whilst the fighting forces gain most of the accolades, the task of the Combat Service Support often goes unrecognised. Frank de Planta will explain how the men and women of the Royal Army Medical Corps were organised at Monte Cassino with particular reference to the 46 Infantry Division in February-March 1944 and how their participation played such a crucial role in maintaining the morale and motivation of the fighting forces.

Frank de Planta has had an interest in military history since childhood and has run battlefield studies in Spain, France and Italy. He read Modern History at King’s College, London and was commissioned into The Royal Anglian Regiment in 1984. He retired in 1991 and joined the Territorial Army during which time he commanded East Midlands Officers’ Training Corps in Nottingham.

This meeting will be face to face in the York Medical Society rooms and also shared via Zoom.
Please confirm your preference for in person or virtual attendance and if you want to join us for supper afterwards.

Event open to York Medical Society Members and their guests only

After the meeting – two course dinner with wines £25 per head.
